branches of the u.s. military. we're in constant contact with them. i've just now come from the pentagon as you are aware our minister of defense ehud barak received the highest civil honor given by the secretary of defense to any civilian, the distinguished civil service medal. and i think that stands as a symbol of the deep and multifaceted relations between our two militaries. >> we're out of time. you're a historian. he just said ehud barack, that u.s.-israeli military relations have never been better. you agree? >> i agree. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you, wolf. >>> in the wake of the scandal surrounding general david petraeus's affair and the investigations into several other high profile generals, does the u.s. military need an ethics boot camp? and more than a decade after a deadly crash, a u.s. airline gets its day in court. many of my patients clean their dentures with toothpaste. i tell them dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can grow and multiply. polident is specifically designed to clean d
with the president of the united states and the pentagon and the afghans and all the nato allies sprinting for the exits there. that's what's on your plate. that's today. do you want this job of sorting this all out? again, that's today's agenda. that's a thursday in american diplomacy. do you want the job of making all those things right? i do not know you, but i know enough about you to guess that you do not want the job of making all of those things right. >> we cannot view any of these challenges or changes in a vacuum. they are all connected, and our strategy needs to account for the intersections and relationships. so the united states really does need to bring an unprecedented level of strategic sophistication to these problems rather than just chasing after the crisis of the moment. american policymakers need to play chess, not checkers. >> being in charge of diplomacy for the united states of america, being the person responsible for getting america's way in the world by some means other than bombs, being america's top diplomat is harder than any other civilian job in the united s
close to. that the pentagon's got to make a contribution and if there is anything on healthcare, it's gotta be about reforming it, bringing the costs down, not cutting benefits. >> eliot: let's drill down a couple of pieces of this. what do you think the underlying ratio should be between cost cutting and revenue generation. last summer it was 10 to 1 in terms of cutting costs to revenue. thankfully the deal didn't get done. should it be one-to-one? where would you like to see this happen? >> you know, i actually don't know that number because i think the question is i think we need about a trillion and a half from revenues and the revenues have to come, as i mentioned the way president obama was campaigning. and then the pentagon's gotta make a contribution and we've already cut a trillion and a half dollars on domestic discretionary. we'll have to cut more to get a deal. but with the ratio is, i haven't been that close to what the numbers are. >> eliot: one of the issues lurking out there is the debt ceiling and
31, $650 billion in cuts to pentagon and domestic programs and tax increases will automaticly go into effect. republicans are complaining. democrats are not playing fair. >> democrats have yet to get serious about real spending cuts. secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. this is not a game. >> carolyn: joe biden went christmas shopping in the capitol at a discount store. he strolled into costco and buying apple pie. he told reporters falling o-cliff klif is not an option. >> look around here. consumer confidence is growing. last thing we need to do is dash that now by being unable to extend middle-class tax cuts. >> carolyn: costco is hedging. they announced they will pay $3 billion dividend before the end of the year. that will save share hold ears lot of money. >> 138 countries voted to grant they voted against the measure which could make it easier for palestinian authority to pursue israel in international court. mahmoud ahmadinejad addressed the. >> mahmoud abbas addressed. they say they ne
a four year plan like the pentagon, well, i don't know that's the best model to work on. gerri: all right. well, i have to ask you about bp today. >> sure. gerri: big news from bp, federal government saying you are disqualified from winning new contracts. here's bp's statement, the suspension is due to bp's lack of business integ try as demonstrated by the conduct with regard to the deepwater horizon blowout explosion, oil spill, and response. now, the stuff did not get hit today. what's your estimate of what it means? >> a temporary move. the obama administration, again, wanting to show -- hold up bp that we're puppishing them. it's a big company, one of the biggest producers in the u.s.. gerri: matter if it loses contracts in the u.s.? >> they are a lot already. they don't go away, this is just on new contracts. it's a temporary deal. gerri: come back to the set again. >> always happy to be here. gerri: coming up, live to the l.a. auto show and hottest trends in all things cars, and president obama heeds the call to listen to small business owners. no kidding. will the latest meeting ch
popular. if they want more entitlement cuts, more discretionary spending cuts, if they want pentagon cuts, the president wants them to specify them. and this offer is intended in part to say here's my math. here's the level of deficit reduction i can reach. if you think you can reach the same or more with more spending cuts, you go first and name them. >> yeah. >> so richard, we have everybody playing chicken for the most part. it's kabuki. you show your spending cuts and then i'll show mine. >> right. it failed before when the president was negotiating against himself. look, i'm going to come back. $400 billion of medicare cuts is exactly what you would want democrats to do if you want them to start dealing with entitlements. what are we talking about when we say democrats need to deal with entitlements? principally, it's medicare. so that's a huge down payment right there. you can say, well, i don't really believe they're possible, but that's a real proposal. what you're asking for in terms of the politics is that the president somehow solves john boehner's problems with his own caucus.
. by the way, the pentagon has to be included in that as well. the big challenge we face is practical and time. when speaker boehner has to get specific about revenues, it's going to be a lot of anguish on the republican side. what we're going to look at on medicare is whether what we're doing is reforming the subpoena and bringing down the cost or just passing that cost off on to beneficiaries by cutting their benefits back. that's going to be tough on the democratic side. >> how about wealthy people? what about means testing medicare? you willing to do that? somebody's got $1 million in the bank. should they get medicare? >> up to a point. >> they should get medicare? >> they should get medicare, and there should be means testing. we're doing that now. so the fact is a balanced deal is the only way we're going to go forward. now, i am not advocating we go over the cliff. my preference is to get it done right away. but will we be able to do that when up until the election it was an over my dead body approach on both sides? now we're hearing the speaker and both sides say the right things, but
save the money, but we can transfer responsibilities at of the pentagon and consolidate programs and serious significant amount of money. >> this weekend you can talk about tom coburn above the fiscal cliff and the republican party in "in the." on c-span 2. >> his comments, the same day timothy geithner made the rounds on capitol hill, visiting with house and senate leaders, this is 10 minutes. >> the president has warned us about going over the fiscal cliff. his actions have not matched his public statements. members of his own party some quite comfortable with the sending his party over the fiscal cliff. two 6 ago had a comfortable conversation and the white house. i would say two thanks. despite declines the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have it to its various a barrel spending cuts. secondly, no progress has been made in the talks over the last a of weeks. this is not a game. jobs are on the line. the american economy is on the line. this is a moment for american leadership. it is the way ticket it done until washington. a mature0 lead and a had a meet
